Vangeline Theater - 5th
A New Butoh Sci-Fi Fantasy by Vangeline Theater
5 Dances about the 5th:
5th dimension, 5th element, 5th position,
5th amendment, 5th of Beethoven.
Featuring critically acclaimed Vangeline and the Vangeline Theater, and musical arrangement by Ysanne Spevack (Smashing Pumpkins)
Since its inception in 2002, Vangeline Theater has fused the post-apocalyptic vision of Butoh (the Japanese dance form that developed after Hiroshima) with the near-cinematic aesthetic of 21st Century science-fiction noir. Vangeline utilizes Butoh techniques to dance the invisible Life Resonance; in Butoh, our humanity comes from embracing ourselves fully, finding beauty and strength from the depth of our fragility. The company has been heralded in several publications, and was "one of the best Dance Visits of 2011" according to Time Out Chicago.
